Coconut Joe’s

A Bakersfield institution for decades, we stopped by here for dinner after arriving in town. Definitely a beach bar and not a tiki bar, despite the large number of tikis (sourced from Oceanic Arts, we’ve been told). More of a Jimmy Buffet place (including his songs playing).

As a family restaurant this place was pretty good. I enjoyed my lobster/crab roll and battered shrimp. Booze is beer and canned cocktails/seltzers.

The impressive outrigger is a focal piece at the rear of the restaurant.
